With regard to the new client update, on gitgub, what's the difference for Windows users between the .exe and the .zip files? Will it still run well if I have a 64bit? I think that's what I have.

The zip file is just the binaries, put them wherever you like and create your own shortcuts for the start menu & desktop.
The exe installer file will put the same binaries in your Program Files folder and create a start menu shortcut for you (similar to what the BTC installer does).

Making changes to mintcoinofficial.com now.  I apologize for not being aware that I had access which allowed me to do this.

yeah. Mintcoinofficial.com is in the process of being moved, so updates will be delayed there.

Note: if you had previously used the old bootstrap, you may encounter a checkpoint/db error when upgrading to 2.0.2. This is due to that old bootstrap being a snapshot rather than an actual bootstrap.dat and it contains conflicting data. We do have a new, official, and linearized bootstrap file available from the below link that will clear up any issues.

I am just mentioning it because I think it's the front page, main site for a lot of links and sites like coin marketcap.com and coingecko etc. So if someone is curious about the coin that's probably where they will be looking first.

Anyone know what is happening with the price of mint at the moment?
It has been going from 11 to 17 satoshi now in a few days Cheesy
I just know this coin can go at least like 10 cent per mintcoin right?
We should go back to the 60 Satoshi range first where this coin belongs!

I think there was some action in China, all the cheap coins on Bter got bought up in a moment and then the action moved to Poloniex, where there is more coins to buy.  I was fortunate enough to grab some at 13 Satoshi on the pull back from the initial move. When Mintcoin starts to move it can REALLY move. Not sure if this is a small or big move yet. I am not a big time experienced Trader or anything, just dabble in it for fun and mainly go long-term for mintings. Seems like when I trade I usually lose my coin positions and end up with fewer Mintcoins than if I just put them to work minting.
At any rate, happy Good Friday to you all!

Yeah. I think it is better to slowly buy coins. If you buy too many too fast, it draws too much attention by day-traders that aren't even interested in MINT long-term... and then creates a pump and dump. If you actually care about MINT, maybe better to keep the volume per day down lower, and under the radar, then all the coins will actually be kept in ownership with people who actually care and not just speculators who don't care. Then it makes them have to pay more to play later their game if they do eventually try to pump it.

Can someone provide a snapshot of the actual blockchain itself?  I'd like to update CryptoChainer, and the torrent won't download for me.  The new wallet wouldn't load the existing blockchain, which seemed inflated in size anyhow.

You might get it. Just patience. Maybe if Bitcoin does something wild like double in value next week, some yahoos will dump chasing the move. Crypto to is volitile; you never know. It can be a good thing though. Eventually if they make a gain they will bring it back into MINT. I like to say when people want to know what I do as a hobby, I will just tell them I trade in the international currency markets and to profit off the volatility...it sounds profesdional, and even though unconventional it is still essentially true. Then if they really want to know more I can introduce crypto and Mintcoin. Most are just intrigued, but don't even care. I talk about the advantages MINT has over BTC why it is my main long. Yeah its been up about 250% on average per year versus USD since it began. Mostly they just think it's all as good as a craps shoot though and don't take it seriously. Maybe, but they are seeking security vs opportunity, IMO. Security in the sense of something that is totally the safe mainstream easy way. My used to be millionaire grandfather once told me, don't go for security, go for opportunity.  I see opportunity with MINT. You do what everyone does you get the results everyone gets. That sort of thing. Also steady plodding brings prosperity, a little here a little there, pretty soon. Begins to add up to a lot.

lol k now I'm feeling Like I jinxed it  Roll Eyes  

I've always put a bit of my profits into MINT. I wish I would have taken trading more seriously when I first found crypto land but I got caught up in chasing new coins, maybe was addicted to the chance one would be the "one" lol so profit was few and far between or long waits... thankfully I learned "never go in deeper than you're willing to lose" fairly quickly with newb coins and wasn't playing with much $ so the losses could have been much worse. I guess it was a good learning experience and probably makes me more aware now that I'm taking trading much more seriously and see it's potential, Ha I wish I could say I do it for a living but I'm not there yet and even then I like my delivery job so I'd prob keep it till I figured out a good plan... plus I get to tell people about bitcoin   Grin  still haven't had anybody ask to pay in BTC yet tho  Angry  lol it'll happen.

I still own the original MINT I mined just have traded it many times to get more, mint the majority even when trading is good all of them when the markets flat and add more when I can. never chase the price and patience is deff a must  Wink  if it looks like it's going to flatten out at 17-18 I'll gladly move my buy up.

Freshly synced MintCoin blockchain snapshot is available on CryptoChainer.com.  It still two almost two days to get in sync, even with the bootstrap, so this one will definitely save you some serious time!

While I can appreciate the effort in this, the ONLY supported bootstrapping method is using the bootstrap.dat file provided periously (and below).

Full datadir "snapshots" sound like a great thing on the surface, but they can introduce a myriad of issues (like the one we recently saw with a snapshot providing junk data that conflicted with a valid checkpoint). Snapshots like this force the client to trust any/all data contained within as valid data...and when a conflict happens, the client just shits a brick and dies.

While the chances of such a "full-stop" failure happening are limited, it is a known point-of-failure. I would urge anyone trying to get their MINT wallet up and running from scratch to either sync from the network or use the proper bootstrap.dat. Yes, it will take some time. The MINT blockchain is large and has been running for quite a while now, don't try to "cheat" the process of getting in sync unless you are willing to accept the fact that you may need to end up syncing from scratch or using the bootstrap.dat anyways in the future.

IMO:
That is the reason I killed my bootstrap.dat for Mint as soon as you came out with the Official mint bootstrap, realizing you were going to say something along those lines.
Not that what you are saying is accurate, but I knew you would say it and tell everyone to only download your custom mint bootstrap.dat .

Fact the previous wallet version worked fine with the blockchain snapshots , the problems never started until your last update.
So the error happen because of one of the changes you guys made to the wallet code not the blockchain itself.

It's funny how you call saving days or weeks of wasted time cheating the processes. (That kills me)  Cheesy

But you guys are running the Dev show at mint now, so your call.

It will be interesting to see if you keep your bootstrap.dat updated monthly or stop with the current one.

One less coin for me to keep updated, just remember that was your choice, when your users start complaining in mass about the ridiculous time delays, hey you wanted it this way.

Good Luck.

 Cool
